Scientists look at the merger of galaxies 13 billion years ago
Scientists have found one of the most remote examples of galaxy merging in results published this week.
Researchers from Japan have observed a distant light source known as B14-65666, located in the constellation known as Sextans, using the Large Millimeter / Submillimeter of Atacama from the Telescopes in Chile
Their data suggests that the object may be a galaxy that forms new stars as a result of a collision in space.
Previous observations with the Hubble Space Telescope have revealed. two star clusters in B14-65666

The artist's impression of the fusion of galaxies known as B14-65666, 13 billion light-years away. Takkuya Hashimoto, a postdoctoral student at the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science and the University of Waseida, Japan, explained that the signals that were sent to the Russian Academy of Sciences, obtained from the constellation, must travel up to 13 billion light-years to reach them.
This means researchers can study how the galaxy looks 13 billion years ago, or less than 1 billion years after the Big Bang. 19659003] "The discovery of three-component radio waves in such a remote object clearly shows ALMA's high ability to explore the remote universe," Hashimoto said in a press release.
Scientists will continue to use this kind of research to study the origin.
"The very early universe seems like a very exciting time to be a galaxy with a very violent clash. and nothing that looks like the structure we have been accustomed to in later times, "said Dan Marone, an associate professor at the University of Arizona, told Gizmodo.
